Tagnabit Launched!

Last night we announced the launch of tagnabit, a social media aggregator. It’s “a service that aggregates tags from popular social media websites. It is useful for conferences or other events. Participants can use a shared tag across Twitter, Flickr, Technorati, YouTube and Delicious. Tagnabit then aggregates this content in one place.” The idea originally [...]

The Web Is Not A Visual Medium

A claim you may have heard me make before is that the web is not a visual medium. Some of you know exactly what I mean and some of you probably think I’m nuts. For those of you who think I’m crazy, let me elaborate. You, like most people, probably experience the web visually. However, [...]

VPR Reports Campaign 2008

For coverage of local Vermont and national election news, check out the VPR Reports Campaign 2008 page that we (well, Jason really) put together. The 2008 Election Map is a Flash widget provided by NPR but other than that the page is all XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript (via jQuery and jQuery UI). Check back throughout [...]

VSA Arts of Vermont Website

We recently launched the updated VSA Arts of Vermont website. Since VSA Arts of Vermont’s mission is to make “the world of the arts accessible to Vermonters of all abilities” it was critical that their new website be accessible. This was a challenge we readily accepted as web accessibility is something we take very seriously. [...]

Northeast Pools & Spas Website Launch

We just launched the new Northeast Pools & Spas website. I think Dave and Jason did a great job on the visual design and Liz did a fabulous job on organizing and helping to write the content! I worked primarily on the functionality for the construction and portfolio pages. The site is implemented using semantic [...]

New Found Line Website Launched

I am happy to report that the new Found Line website has launched! This new version includes some much needed content and visual updates and is now running in Zend Framework (although there is very little functionality beyond static content). All of the visual effects use jQuery, there is no Flash to be found on [...]

POSH In Action

In a previous post I talked about Plain Old Semantic HTML (POSH). The POSH concept saved us a lot of time and frustration on a recent project. Our task was to create a cold water wash calculator for Seventh Generation’s Get Out of Hot Water for Earth Day promotion. The calculator takes four inputs: water [...]

Standards

I’m sure everyone has heard the phrase, “The great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.” I think we finally have a coding standard for everything we do at Found Line – from PHP to CSS to web file names. We’ve gone through a couple of iterations and various options [...]

Plain Old Semantic HTML (POSH)

I didn’t realize someone had coined a clever phrase for this concept. The basic concept of POSH is creating (X)HTML that is semantic, or structural, rather than presentational. Most people experience the web as a visual medium and thus assume that it is a visual medium. Many web development tools (such as Dreamweaver’s WYSIWYG editor) [...]
